Tips for Maintaining the Scotts Elite Spreader

Asides from using the right settings for your spreader, you can also get the best results by taking proper care of the device.  Now here are the steps needed for maintaining the Scotts Elite Spreader.

1. Clean the Spreader

As you use the spreader, it tends to gather dirt that might affect its performance. But you can avoid future problems by removing the mess with a quick wash.

2. Lubricate the Spreader with Oil

Apply some lubricant to the movable parts of the spreader. With the right oil, your spreader will work perfectly for longer periods.

3. Break Lumpy Fertilizers

Since lumpy chunks of fertilizer do not work well with spreaders, it would help if you broke the hardened pieces into smaller bits. You can start by using a hammer or a tough piece of wood.

4. Use the Scotts Elite Spreader Manual

If you are not sure about the best settings for using the Scotts Speedy Green spreader, try using its owner’s manual. After all, this booklet has a chart that shows the best flow settings for the product for different tasks.

5. Contact the Customer Care Centre

If you have any issues with using this Scott Spreader, you should reach out to their customer center via mail or phone call. You can also check their website for any information that might help you with the product.
